. senator jeff merkley, a democrat from oregon is trying to change that. he's got a proposal to force talking filibusters in the senate. it wouldn't change what i think is a central part in the senate, the 60-vote super majority, but it would make the filibuster into something that the minority had to put some effort into using. you have to want it. now, so i want to be clear on merkley's proposal. if it passed, the minority could still filibuster anything they wanted. they couldn't subject almost everything to the same 60-society challenge we have now. all they would have to do is talk. tell the american people why. and they probably wouldn't even have to do that that much, because the majority can't just let them talk all the time, they have to let them get stuff done. but even that modest reform is too much for many senators. "the huffington post" reports that a bipartisan group of lawmakers led by herman cain and levin are proposing a counter proposal that does even less. it would eliminate some redundant opportunities to filibuster. give quicker consideration to some nominations,

the state police are on the scene. and look at the row of ambulances lined up. >> again, jeff, i think the good news we have to report right now, even though two people have been shot, a gunman has been neutralized and one person is confirmed killed. we have rows and rows of ambulances parked outside of clackamas town center. right now it looks like they're not being used. so we're thankful for that, that we don't have stretchers of people being loaded out of that mall right now. we don't know if there are any more victims. we do know that people are still being escorted out of the mall right now as we speak because after these shots were fired they went into nooks and crannies, wherever they could find, and they basically hid and locked themselves in, locked themselves down. now the s.w.a.t. teams are going through the mall and clearing each little pocket of people out of the mall making sure the scene is safe and telling people to keep your head down and women and children first. can you imagine hearing that when you're walking out of a mall. >> if you do know the mall, we showed a p

consideration, the main way to change the rules comes from oregon democrat jeff merkley. if you want to filibuster, you can't say 60 vote rule, too bad. can't vote on that. you actually have to go down and hold the floor and talk and talk and talk and talk all night and for days and for weeks. you need to work for it. there is merit to this idea. it would make filibusters harder on the minority. it would make them more transparent to the public. it would make them less likely on popular bills, but it wouldn't reverse the transformation of the senate into a place where 60 votes required to get anything done. so there is a proposal that personally i like better. frankly, it's kind of an ingenious proposal. it recognizes that there is general value in protecting the minority's right to be heard. but in order to protect that right, you don't need to make every vote a 60-vote supermajority. this proposal would in one fell swoop end the 60-vote senate, but it would preserve the interests of lengthy debate. the idea doesn't come from outside group or some young radical. it comes from a long

most popular and respected members, senator jeff bingaman of new mexico. when jeff came to this body 30 years ago, he had already led a life of accomplishment created in small-town new mexico, silver city. he was an eagle scout, graduated from harvard college, stanford law school, where he met his future wife, ann. while at stanford, he worked in senator robert f. kennedy's campaign for president. at the age of 35, he was elected new mexico attorney general in 1978. and four years later at the age of 39, elected to the united states senate. during his three decades in this body, jeff bingaman has been a classic workhorse senator as opposed to being a show horse senator. he is truly remarkable and distinctive among senators for his willingness to shun the limelight and share the credit in order to get important things done for his state and for this country. senator bingaman has been a much valued colleague of mine on the health, education, labor and pensions committee, but he has really made his mark in the senate a lasting mark in his role as chair of the energy and natural resources c

, jeff bingaman, of new mexico, someone who's always brought intellectual rigor, a lawyer's insistence on thoroughness and a real commitment to people. it's been an honor and a pleasure to work with him on the help committee, especially on the affordable care act. i was proud to support him all that he did, particularly in developing and focusing on the health work force for the future. i knew i could count on jeff in the committee and on the floor as one of those men that i refer to as the ga gallahads, where mn of quality always support we women as we sought equality. our initiatives to end discrimination against women in the health care and in the workplace were some of our proudest achievements in working together. i also would like to comment about jon kyl. i've worked across the aisle from jon kyl and i've been seated across the table from him at everything from bible study group to the senate intelligence committee. we studied the words of the bible together to make ourselves better and we worked in our committees to make the world better. we lived through september 11th and the
. everyone from joe wilson who we refer to as the scoutmaster and jeff duncan who is not here with us, i have been afforded the great opportunities in the world to serve in the house of representatives. what has made more meaningful is to have served with these four guys and our scoutmaster. i look forward to continue to build. i have not won anything yet in the senate. i have to run for reelection in 2014. i look for to the opportunity to introduce myself to citizens throughout this great state. the future is incredibly bright for america. we have our challenges. we have things we have to overcome. boy does the future look great in south carolina. we are good together. they're better together. our future will reflect the good opportunities coming to our nation. i wanted to say to the governor, watching her from a distance has been incredible. i cannot imagine the daily pressures of governing this great state. i cannot imagine the areas that have flowed away all the time. i can see with clarity the conviction and integrity and character that you have given. south carolina is better because we
the first person, was the receptionist, she was great. and jeff brown, he took me through it. it wasn't a hard sales pitch. in fact, we couldn't even do anything for two weeks. so in that time we started with the orientation and training and every time we did, took a step closer and it was good. >> steve: it's been great for you so far. i know you've been a stay at home mom. you were looking for something. now your brother could actually work for you if he chooses. david, this is the kind of story you're looking for. >> exactly right. we have 30 master territories in operation presentsly with approximately 2200 unit franchisees such as yvonne and look for additional veterans to come in at a higher level to purchase these master territories. hence our discounted program. >> steve: got you. this is a company that specializes in janitorial services, right? >> yes. all business to business. >> steve: all right. so you've already got two businesses who have said, you needs? we want your business to clean our business. >> that's right. i'm cleaning up. >> steve: you are cleaning up. it's tu
that are leading this are tom udall from new mexico and jeff merkley from oregon. and you know, the hurdles someone once said that during the 1950s writer was talking about the southern democrats blocking civil rights and they said that the senate was ending revenge for gettysburg and the rules of the senate have lent themselves -- back then, it blocked civil rights but it wasn't a work a day kind of obstructionist. as horrible as it was blocking civil rights legislation. today is it is almost everything. you need 60 votes. it doesn't even -- the majority leader can't even bring a bill up to debate without a 60 votes if the minority wants to force 60 votes. that's got to change. the selection -- the confirmation of federal judges and less than cabinet level appointees, those kinds of things are just obstructionism, period. when in the past, we always were able to just bring it forward to get 51 votes. if you don't, you don't. some of these votes will be more aimed to that. certainly to give the minority rights to slow th
trillion in debt. jeff, so what does it take to get someone like alicia hired? >> i think that the economic underpinnings underpinnings require some security and some long-term stability. it is not enough for congress to come along and say, okay, we have decided on this deal for 2013. i think the political class is loving this attention. we're all sitting here on pins and needles and bated breath waiting for they on high to decide our futures. it would be really nice if we could get back to the point where we say here is the rates, here is the appreciation, here is the withholding, and let the rest of us go do what we're supposed to do, which is help alicea get a job. >> students protest for healthy school lunches. they actually get what they asked explains how next.

. royce: i thank the gentlelady for yielding. i'd just like to begin by thanking jeff duncan and his staff as well for their good work on this legislation. but i would remind the members in terms of iranian activity in this hemisphere, we think what first comes to mind is the attack in the 1990's in argentina, but more recently hezbollah has penetrated our borders and one example i would give to you is a man trained by iranian intelligence. he paid a bribe in order to get to mexico from beirut. once in mexico he paid a second bribe, this time to a cartel group in order to have himself inserted in a special compartment in the back of a car. the reason is he important is because it was his brother who was in charge for security in israel and during the hezbollah war, and i was there at the time, i saw those missiles that were ordered launched by hezbollah into a town that was under attack. there were some 600 casualties in that hospital trarp a direct result of those iranian and syrian missiles that were being fired on the hospital. frankly it was one of the targets. but fired on that town,
page, jess says -- jeff says -- nicholas, what kind of gun do you have? caller: i have two fire armas, an ak-47, and an ar-15 bought as recently as yesterday. host: why did you buy one yesterday? caller: i have wanted one for some time but just didn't. in anticipation of a ban, i made the decision to go out and purchase one. that being said, i want to say i am in favor of huge increases in gun-control law. i think one of the things that is most disturbing to me is to hear fear mongering on both sides of the conversation whether it is coming from anti- gun or pro-gun individuals. what i hear from the pro-gun individuals is that the way to combat crime is to throw more guns at it. i could not possibly disagree more. i think there are some people who should not have guns, definitely should not have guns, this individual involved in the sandy hook tragedy. there are people who should not have the right to. i am in favor of have the background checks. whether the money comes from the gun buyer and the cost goes up in order to get proper background checks done or you just don't buy a gun. i
years old. we'll have jeff toobin later in the show to talk about bork and his legacy. >>> president obama takes first steps towards new gun control laws. he promised the changes sunday at a heart wrenching vigil and next hour mr. obama will announce that vice president joe biden will lead the effort to form new policies to rein in gun violence. one of the toughest questions investigators will try to answer is why did this happen in the first part, this terrible tragedy in connecticut? where did adam lanza shoot and kill his mother and 20 children and six adults inside sandy hook elementary before turning the gun on himself? those who knew him described him as quiet and socially awkward. he was a fan of video games. he did not have a criminal record. it is hard to believe that anyone would really commit something this terrible. mary ellen o'toole, a former fbi profiler and joins us from washington. good morning. thank you for being here. >> good morning. thank you. >> i think that so many people are just trying to get a grip on who this kid was and why he did what he did. as a profil
problem, not a taxing problem. jeff says, you don't become fiscally responsible by continued increases in your credit card spending limits. folks in congress need to quit running from the hard choices and stop burying our children and grandchildren in debt. david from humble, texas, said this. this isn't really rocket science. stop spending money we don't have. cut back on what we do spend and stop sending money to our enemies. now, there's a novel idea. paul from beaumont, said this. we don't have a revenue problem. instead, it's been a spending problem and it's been a spending problem for a long time. larry said, if i'm ute of cash i stop -- if i'm out of cash, i stop spending. perhaps congress should do the same what i do in my house. when i don't have enough money i stop spending. congress has a printing press backed by the chinese. ashley says, spending must be stopped. just taking more from americans is not good. if my taxes aren't affected, my employers are. what will happen to me in the long run? i guess i'm going to find out. yes, you are going to find out here on new year's e
